- "Reader Mode" zoom level doesn't correlate with "Browser Mode"
. switching between either mode should maintain a consistent Zoom Level
Fixing this is a non-goal. Our expectation is that you/we (users) configure reader mode as we like it - you can adjust line lengths, font type, font size, theming, etc. - and that there would then be no reason to want those settings to change those based on which website you were viewing.
Zoom in reader mode really only changes the font size - the line lengths are specified in font-size agnostic units and as a result the perception is that the page "zooms" but that is not really what happens under the hood. Having it "inherit" from the page would be confusing for users and lead to unexpected outcomes.
- Fix 'Keyboard Shortcuts' to be consistent between "Reader Mode" and "Browser Mode".
If I'm understanding this correctly this really means "make cmd/ctrl-0 reset the zoom like it does outside reader mode", right? I agree that this should work, I'm just trying to understand if there's some other way the keyboard shortcuts are not consistent/working.
- Fix control labelling to reflect current Zoom Level in reader mode.
There was existing discussion in bug 1595064 around this. PDFs have the same issue (separate zoom levels that aren't reflected in the main browser's zoom indicators), but fixing this is not trivial. Similar to PDFs, reader mode zoom is not really identical to "normal" zoom as I've outlined above. As a workaround, you can inspect the zoom level in the reader mode toolbar by checking the number between the "+" and "-" in the type controls popup (if useful, while pressing ctrl-+ and ctrl--). Any further discussion of this particular issue should happen in bug 1595064, not here - we try to keep bugs focused on 1 issue at a time because otherwise the discussion becomes hard to follow, as well as making it tricky to decide when something is "fixed" if fixing 1 of the many issues outlined there is much easier/harder than the others.
